Converting Organic Matter into Biogas

WHAT IS Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic Digestion is a natural biological process where organic material, in our case food waste, is broken down by bacteria. It is similar to composting but differs in that it takes place in sealed, oxygen-free tanks to produce biogas that can be used to generate electricity and heat. Currently, much of our biodegradable waste is sent to landfill, where it breaks down to release methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. AD helps tackle climate change by diverting this waste from landfill and incineration.

Bio Dynamic is aiming to put the East Midlands firmly on the map. With ambitious expansion plans we hope to create more energy and more jobs for the local community now and for future generations. Watch this space!


Biogas is the output of an anaerobic digester that provides energy. It is approximately 60% methane and 40% CO2. It is mainly used to generate electricity for local use and for feeding into the national electricity grid.
